Four people were killed and 13 others were injured on May 18, when ISIS terrorists carried out a brutal attack on a small town in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula.

In an official statement, Sinai Tribes Union, a tribal coalition supporting government forces, said that a group of well-armed terrorists raided the town of al-Ajalin, east of the city of al-Sheikh Zuweid in northern Sinai.

After storming the town, the terrorists opened fire at civilians. Eventually, a number of local fighters confronted the terrorists, forcing them to run away.

Local sources in al-Ajalin told the London-based Asharq al-Awsat newspaper that ISIS terrorists attacked the town in order to loot civilians’ houses. According to the sources, the attackers were at least ten.

On May 20, ISIS’ news agency, Amaq, released photos of the attack. The terrorist group falsely claimed that the attack target “border guards” of the Egyptian Armed Forces who were “looting” civilians houses in al-Ajlan.

Following the attack, a series of airstrikes were reported in the outskirt of al-Ajlan, in what was likely a response by the Egyptian military.

Egyptian government forces conduct counter-terrorism operations in Sinai on a regular basis.

good american

Why bother showing photos at all if you’re going to pixel everything out?

James Adams

It could be that the internet disallows graphic violence. Plus I don’t think the families of the victims want that to be the internet were you can identify. I agree if showing it has meaning e.g. a video showing a military operation. But violence or gore for the sake of it kind of means you got a problem and should get help.

Then don’t show anything, numbnuts.

James Adams

Shooting dead innocent civilians and then posing like you’ve conquered the world, nice. Yet a few mins later a few dozen angry citizens with weapons scare you of? What happened to the hardened warrior?

Oh dear. Looks like no matter how hard they try, the Egyptians can’t can’t rid of Daesh either.
